If anything the most likely anime related things to be affected would be stuff like OVAs, manga and merchendise since you have to persuade people to part with larger sums of money at once for them.

The ongoing series should hopefully be ok since they are payed for by adverts or TV subscriptions

Credit Crunch is why when the credit goes into a crisis...The banks are loaning
too much money and not getting them back which means they losing some of our money...
Many people are in debt...Prices of products have gone up because people want more money =(

I don't think it would affect anime tho...Credit Crunch mainly affects
prices etc...Unless our favourite writers get unemployed but that seems unlikely

DONT WORRY


I see. Thanks.

we Japanese will sell our rice cookers before allowing the decline of anime. instead of nuclear weapons, our Japanese Self-Defense Force has stockpiled anime. all of you have nothing to worry about.

Credit Crunch cereal has been banned from Japan's import list. you can find this breakfast favorite only in the U.S.A.

There's always the possibility of small-budget studios going out of business, which would lessen the amount of manga and anime accordingly, but somehow, I highly doubt it. Most companies have dealt with hardships and managed their way through them. Those that failed these times aren't even in the running anyways. At any rate, they'll pull through the same way they got through their first couple of years of establishing themselves -- avoiding unnecessary expenses and working much closer with companies that help to pay their bills.
